provided a much more philosophical defense of sufism. so finally, well, like the monastic path in christianity or other areas, religions have to take care of their mystics, and so what we find here is that the path is embraced and we're allowed to see it. so let me let a true sufi sheik speak just a bit about his experience. >> [translator) >> we take from jesus christ this- upon him his humility in dressing. humility in eating. i will mean the whole knowledge. nobody can become a mystic, a sufi, without having a deep knowledge. we love those who hate us. we bless who curse us. we do not keep hatred against anyone in the world. we're against rules. and we do not even curse those who are fermenting. we hope that god will illuminate his way to the right. >> you speak of love and humility in the sufi tradition. do you feel that then the violence that we sometimes see in the holy land is very painful, very difficult? >> [speaking in arabic] [translation] >> violence cannot emerge from people- it cannot emerge from people who love god, in any religion. >> or in the holy land, in arab c

(rock 'n roll music playing) the world is ours. so, like, figure this: there's thousands and maybe millions of us walking around with this inside of us, this time bomb ticking, making our futures finite. suddenly i realized we got nothing to lose. you know, i went to the usc film school. and being in a really industry-oriented school really pushed me more towa
